    Forgot Yo-Yo and Bahamadia - two of the most slept on. Kim and Foxy are also obvious omissions. Two you probably have never heard include Sookee a queer/feminist rapper from Germany, and Durham's own shirlette ammons.

    All very, very dope emcees.

    in no order: Missy, Eve, Brat, mc lyte, salt and pepper, Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill. Gonna look at the folks you mention above. Also, this is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

      You named several of my favorites emcees, period. All incredibly dope sisters. Rah Digga, too. Who are we missing?

      • Ben Goldhirsh

        you could add yoyo, left eye, trina maybe.
